Zututh: The First Toothbrush Designed For Dogs: Review And Giveaway!

Here's a "group shot" of Zututh's new toothbrushes designed specifically for dogs.

We're excited to bring you our perspective on a new line of toothbrushes designed just for dogs, and give you the opportunity to win one! Please see the simple directions at the end of this post to enter.
And...Zututh has generously provided a special discount code for our readers for 10% off  any final toothbrush purchase, good only until September 15, 2013:  bocciscode. We hope you enjoy!

Parental Unit freely admits to being a skeptical consumer who tends not to believe the advertising jingles, does her due diligence to research a product and always reads the fine print. She also prefers the plain over the fancy as far as product design is concerned. Because she's always used a "manual" toothbrush for herself, she was more than a bit skeptical when asked to review an electric toothbrush designed just for dogs, by an oral surgeon, no less...until she did a bit of research and actually tried the product.

We all know how important proper dental hygiene is for our pets, and many of us have taken to at least fairly regularly brushing our pets' teeth to help slow the buildup of tartar and plaque. But Parental Unit has always used a small-ish, soft-bristled human toothbrush, or the toothbrush that came with the doggy  toothpaste, to brush my teeth. After reading the information on Zututh's website and doing some cross-checking research, she now better understands why a toothbrush designed specifically for canines is better able to clean our teeth: dogs have different dental anatomy than humans-duh! Human teeth are arranged in an arch, but dog teeth are arranged in an S or Z shape.

Enter the patent-pending canine toothbrush by Zututh, designed to not only fit the shape of our mouths and precious teeth, but to clean the areas that collect plaque the most, the upper back molars, with its longer length and angled head. It comes in two varieties: a regular manual toothbrush and the battery-operated, electric, "Zututh Breeze", pictured below.

And yes, the battery-operated toothbrush comes with batteries already installed! Just gently press down on the soft, center button and the bristles begin to vibrate, while making a very soft whirring sound. Although the sound is just barely audible (at least to Parental Unit), she though she'd better let me examine the brush first and spend a few minutes getting used to the sound before sticking it in my mouth-good work, Parental Unit! (Please excuse the quality of these pictures, the friend who took them forgets to remove his fingers from the frame-oops!)

Parental Unit admits to being downright shocked at how comfortable this toothbrush is to hold and use-it has a striated and somewhat larger rubber handle so you humans don't loose your grip, and the angle of the brush head combined with the angle of the bristles does seem to be a superior design for the canine mouth.

Here's a close-up of Parental Unit brushing the sides of my mouth (my beard makes a convenient handle).

             And here she is moving on to the front teeth...

The idea is that because of the moving bristles, angled head and longer length, more teeth are cleaned in one motion, and so it takes less time to thoroughly clean your dog's mouth-which I heartily agree is a good thing! The bottom line is that this toothbrush does not just have a completely different look and feel compared to a toothbrush designed for humans, it works differently, and we think much more effectively, too. Parental Unit says she will never again use a regular toothbrush on me-it's a Zututh Breeze from now on!

Both the Zututh manual and battery-operated Breeze eclectic toothbrushes come in sizes small, medium and large, to be selected by your dog's weight. For reference, I weigh 32 pounds and a size medium fits perfectly. And it's economical, too. The brush head can be replaced, so there's no need to purchase an entirely new toothbrush when the bristles are worn.

Note: We received one Zututh Breeze Electric toothbrush, courtesy of Zututh, in exchange for a truthful product review. Our opinions are 100% our own!

A special tooth brush for us dogs - sounds like a pretty good idea actually :)

Sage said...

Neat! I've seen toothbrushes shaped a bit like this, but this looks more practical. I don't know whether Sage would go for the motor sounds, though.
